This fully updated third edition of the highly praised Cognition and Emotion provides a comprehensive overview of contemporary research on both normal emotional experience and the emotional disorders.

The book provides a comprehensive review of the basic literature on cognition and emotion – it describes the historical background and philosophy of emotion, reviews the main theories of normal emotions and emotional disorders, and the research on the five basic emotions of fear, anger, sadness, anger, disgust and happiness. The authors provide a unique integration of two areas which are often treated separately: the main theories of normal emotions rarely address the issue of disordered emotions, and theories of emotional disorders (e.g. depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and phobias) rarely discuss normal emotions. The book draws these separate strands together, introducing a theoretical framework that can be applied to both normal and disordered emotions.

Cognition and Emotion provides both an advanced textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in addition to a novel approach with a range of implications for clinical practice for work with the emotional disorders.


Reviews

'This third edition of Cognition and Emotion remains an essential reference for both the clinician and the researcher in cognitive psychopathology. After presenting the historical and philosophical roots of cognition and emotion research, it provides a clear and synthetic presentation of how cognition concurs to emotion, how emotion becomes disordered, and how it can be cured.' - Pierre Philippot, Psychological Sciences Research Institute, University of Louvain, Belgium
